    It is a question in french, can't figure out what. Ask the person...

    It appears that the writer was attempting to write the French phrase "porquios pas'" which translates as "Why not?"

    I'm not positive but I think it's kinda of a way of cause and effect...similar to saying, that's the way the cookie crumbles...

    The phrase is "pourquoi pas?" and it means "why not".

    In response, you could say simply: "parce que" which means "because". Or..."c'est la vie" which is "that's life".

    it means 'why not?'

    'pourque' means 'for what?' in french which is equivalent to why, 'pas' is a bit of superflous negation.
